The best of the grade at Fosters. Easy climbing to a decent stance. Some big moves to a good shake start the clock ticking. Three more big moves and you have to thrutch for the finger lock. Now comes the clip, its a good thing those footholds are big :) Two more powerful moves gains the sloper, and its just one. more. lunge. to the jugs.


White Wall section.

I agree, this is a very fun route. I would put satisfaction and vapor lock as the 2 best 12a's at Fosters. Not sure which I like better... I'd probably give Satisfaction the nod as you can climb it all year round. Feb 8, 2008

This route was originally put up on natural gear. It's a shame (even in a sport climbing area) to have bolted it. It goes safely on gear. Great route though, top 5 at Fosters. Apr 6, 2008
Where are the anchors on this one? Does it share anchors with Wristlets? Chat steel book shows the line finishing on the big block up right, which seems to be very run out... Jun 17, 2018

I'm sure if you do this route as a trad climb, you'll still get plenty of 'satisfaction', despite the bolts being nearby. Perhaps even more because you know you don't need them! Granted, if the climb were at T-Wall, it would most likely be graded only 11+. In the meantime, us trad climbers get to tick a 5.12 more easily because we know how to fingerlock. Nov 23, 2018
